Focus on Science and Society focuses on key ethical issues raised by groundbreaking scientific and technological advancements in today's society.

In the past, cloning was a figment of science fiction. However, ever since Dolly, the cloned sheep, was introduced in 1998, it has become an astonishing reality. Scientists around the world are facing the frontier of human cloning. Should the line be drawn here? What about using genetic engineering to "program" one's own unborn child? The author goes to the cutting edge of scientific research and examines its myriad of ethical consequences.
